Spring Cleaning Tips for a Healthy, Happy Body & Mind, Pt. 1


We have had some seriously frigid weather here in Staten Island, and while we’re not quite done with the winter weather yet, there’s nothing wrong with getting a jump on spring cleaning — and we don’t just mean cleaning your home. Winter is hard on our bodies and minds. The constant cold and gloomy days, the freezing wind, the relentless snow, the icy surfaces, all these aspects of winter take a toll on our skin and our overall beauty and wellness. As your trusted spa in Staten Island, our Remedi Spa team has some health, beauty, and wellness tips that you can follow to rejuvenate your body and mind to pull yourself out of winter mode and get ready for the warmer months ahead. Please continue reading below.

Get Active

We tend to get a little sluggish and inactive during the colder months. While we may tell ourselves that we will work off those extra holiday treats and drinks once the new year comes around, it can be hard to stick to those New Year’s resolutions. We’re only human, after all. However, spring is a season for new beginnings, and as the warmer temperatures come around more frequently, it can be easier to stick to our health goals. So, over the next few weeks, set small goals for yourself to get moving. Whether you set a goal to walk for 20 minutes three to five times a week, or stand more while at work, your body and mind will thank you.  

Spring Clean Your Beauty Supplies

Spring is the perfect time to clean and purge your beauty supplies. Take some time to go through your face care products, your hair care products, and your body treatments, and toss those that have expired or that you hardly ever use. Expired beauty products are less effective, especially when they have significantly surpassed their shelf life. What’s more, beauty products that sit and go unused can grow bacteria and turn rancid, especially when they’re stored in a warmer area. Clean out your brushes and soak them in hot, soapy water to remove product buildup. Thoroughly clean your makeup applicators and toss any that are really old and worn. Throw out old or unused perfumes and lotions that have an unusual odor. And replace old makeups, especially if you can’t remember when you purchased them.


Restore Moisture to Your Face

There’s a reason why your skin feels dry during the winter months — the dry air, cold wind, and minimal exposure to warmth makes it hard to keep your face moisturized and hydrated. Dry skin and clogged pores also contribute to breakouts and acne. Rejuvenate the skin on your face with a hydrafacial this spring. A hydrafacial cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin, while also extracting unwanted debris from pores, lines, and wrinkles on the face. You will see immediate results as your skin looks and feels tighter and more youthful for a glowing appearance just in time for spring.
